Like the rest of us, Hillary Clinton was getting a kick out of Donald Trump’s cartoonish antics. But like the rest of us, Hillary Clinton is pretty fed up, as the Republican frontrunner’s already reprehensible rhetoric took a nasty turn this week.
Clinton was on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, where the host began his interview by asking her about Trump. “I have to say, Seth, I no longer think he’s funny,” she said to applause from the studio audience. This is in sharp contrast to how Clinton and the rest of the Democratic Party have been handling Trump so far, as nothing more than a carnival sideshow. As recently as Sunday, Clinton was giggling at the very mention of Trump’s name. “I’m sorry, I can’t help it,” she told ABC News.
But in light of Trump’s harmful comments that he would ban all Muslims from entering the U.S. should he be elected president, Clinton, and the rest of the world, has been forced to take Trump very seriously. His comments “really plays right into the hands of the terrorists,” she said. “I think for weeks, you know, you and everybody else were just bringing folks to hysterical laughter and all of that. But now he has gone way over the line. And what he’s saying now is not only shameful and wrong. It’s dangerous.”
Clinton’s point is that Trump’s incendiary comments can be used as a propaganda tool by radical organizations to recruit more potential terrorists. Sadly, she’s not wrong. Watch her comments above.
